Count how many times you said “Trump” when you should say “consumers”. The opposite of unfettered asshole capitalism isn’t socialism: it’s sales tax. Socialism is the opposite of bullying, but only when the bullying is intentional. Under modern marketing science, you can’t have consumerism and intentionality at the same time, and without intentions, you have no democracy. One dollar is always a vote in consumerism, and marketers vote for politicians billions of times a day, either with lobbying or advertising that manipulates viewers. We get one vote in 4 years for candidates pre-selected by markets.

Trump is just a cartoon character selling assholery, and everyone blames the assholery, not the selling.
